Calling all students! Can you use your skills and ideas to find solutions to our society’s problem? Are you passionate about building a better society? Do you want to use your skills and ideas to find solutions to problems?

We’re looking for people who believe they can make a difference to society, from any background or degree discipline to join a unique 24-hour hackathon! 

Social Storm is a global hackathon competition connecting young people around the world to tackle global problems through entrepreneurial thinking. 

Join 200+ students from 15 international universities to choose from three social challenges and develop viable solutions over 24 hours.

The competition brings together university students from across the world to work on sustainable solutions to our global social challenges. You will be working in teams comprising students from other universities to find a sustainable solution to a real challenge to our global society. Using virtual communication tools so you do not need to leave the campus, we are showing how technology is bringing the world closer together, and how everyone can play a role in helping communities around the world. 

Within the intensive 24 hours you will need to work with your international team to develop a business solution to help solve the social issue, validate your ideas, and submit a video pitch to a team of judges. Plus, there will be a range of workshops and lots of mentors to tap into for advice.

Social Storm is a great addition to your CV, and an opportunity to develop your enterprise and employability skills. The winning team will also receive a cash prize of £100 for each member of the team.

This event is open to all Plymouth University undergraduate and postgraduate students. 

To register, email amber.strong@plymouth.ac.uk by 12pm, Monday 16 November.
